EDIT: Mather, I thought the girl you 'PLEDGED ETERNAL DEVOTION' and all that to ended up being a lesbian?

 

How is it that she's with a guy, then?

Wrong girl. This is the perfectly nerdy one.

Ah. So you've matured emotionally, or just have Aesop Amnesia?

No, he's just one of those guys who falls in love within moments.

 

Admittedly it's an easy trap to fall in.

 

Girls generally don't like it if you seem too desperate and say shit like you love them all the time, it's kind of like you wouldn't want a girl to obsess over you.

It's a REALLY big shaft.

I didn't catch fire, I used the can of hairspray as a flamethrower and pointed it at my arm.

how are you going to ignore my posts when I'm offering to let you live as my vassal in two weeks time?

In the future, just use this one, it's much better anyways:

Snail%20Abandon%20Thread.gif

 

Comparing the two...The Anime one is better.

The snail one lasts forever, is physically questionable and, at the end of the day, isn't actually that funny/amusing.

The Anime is concise, makes a limited amount of sense (People jump out of windows) and isn't trying to be funny, and is reasonably amusing.

 

 

Considerably better:

Lolz. FOOLISH HETROSEXUALS!

 

But yeah. We men tend to be wandering along quite happily, see a penny (or other thing that causes us to stop wandering along quite happily) and then, suddenly the ground has given way and we are stuck down the bottom of a shaft with no hope of escape...Also we can't find the penny we saw.

Well I knew you wouldn't agree. I know how you hate facing facts.

I don't fall in love within moments, that girl was my best friend for a year, three years prior. We accidentally discovered porn games together.

So, off that topic by several miles, what's everyone's favourite video game?

Not entirely relevant.

(Nor am I certain that it will correctly redirect you)

 

I have to agree with Archi on his candidate for Thread Evacuation gifs.

And suddenly I've begun double posting again. Lovely.

 

For reference, the link is supposed to be to Chapter 30 of The Wise Man's Fear, in which Master Nutcase Elodin digresses on the subject of love.

Le Gasp!

And with Last Post to Win shut down you can't make use of your double post skillage!

 

And at the moment...

Star Ruler

 

There is a demo here:

http://starruler.blind-mind.com/files/StarRuler_Demo_1100[Caution: Executable File]

 

It is a pretty impressive game, with a VERY customisable start which allows you to tailor your game. For instance, you can start at tech level 0, or tech level 50. You can define that you have 8 rivial empire and only 1 star in the whole universe, or 1 rivial empire and 10,000 stars. You can have pirates (who constantly raid your systems) and remnants (of previous empires, who guard some solar systems) or neither.

You can even set the tech advance rate.

 

Diplomacy is a weak point against the computer (You can have a fleet of 7,000 ships ready to level their final planet and they will refuse to accept a peace where you give them all of your resources...) but in multiplayer it is pretty dynamic.

Ship Building/Design is pretty immense.

You can design a fighter and then scale the design up so you have a super battleship, with exact the same design....Put another way, if you build a pretty awesome destroyer...say scale 10...You can build a super dreadnought(or whatever you want to name it) of scale 1,400.

However, while bigger ships do more damage(a hellevalot more damage), they take longer to reload and can be overwhelmed BUT if you build a ship with powerful enough shields you can ignore vast fleets of smaller ships.

 

At the same time, if you decide to turtle your way through the game you can build artillery satellites which can obliterate enemy planets' population from ANOTHER STAR SYSTEM...Which I had tremendous fun with.

Also, you can build planetary thrusters and use your own planets, complete with their satellites, to attack enemy systems. So the turtle isn't limited in any way (Against big ships planets stand no chance though =P, even with shields).

 

One of the other rather entertaining things is that, if a system is stupidly well defended, you can blow up the star (in the late game) and obliterate most of the planets and their defences.

 

The game is, admittedly, geared towards massive games...which is a pain...so much of a pain that I uninstalled it after the first time I played it. But I reinstalled it, tinkered with the settings (Now 9 systems in the universe :thumbsup: divided into 3 clusters of 3) and actually managed to win a game! (There is a VERY steep learning curve...I was impressed that I had colonised 3 systems in my first game, when the other empires had dozens of systems...And even in my later games I am often lost as to how the enemy can do better than me)

 

Final point:

The Balance is very good. Taking power systems as the example, there are 3 types: Power Generators, Fusion Generators and Anti-Matter Generators.

Power Generators produce a fairly minor amount of power(Enough to power the ship, yes, but they take up much more room doing it), but will still operate if the ship is on 1,000 HP out of 3,000,000,000.

Fusion Generators produce more power, but will explode when the ship is damaged to about one third of its HP.

Anti-Matter Generators produce FAR more power, but will explode pretty much the moment the shields go down in some cases, taking the whole ship with it.

Similarly you can build a ship with 50 sheets of armour plate, but it costs more.

You can't, however, build a ship with 50 massive railguns on. The max is something like 10-13, or 52-58 of the smallest varity.

So the actual value of 1 super ship is diminished, without being utterly pointless. (I have build 3 super ships and proceeded to wipe out two empires that are larger, and more powerful, than me...But on another occassion, my 3 super ships were defeated by one planet because they took SO long to build they were obsolete.)

 

But yeah...Play it.

Well I knew you wouldn't agree. I know how you hate facing facts.

Too bad it's a download. I can't use download games at all.

Every time I read about wars of succession, it makes me wonder how family reunions end up, since all the royal families of Europe are basically related.

 

Also, I wish there was a way to back out of a war of succession in EU3, because a conflict over Lithuania (seriously, who cares about Lithuania) brought me (Bavaria, soon to be Germany) and my best chum France into a war. All jokes about French military noobness aside, I was currently restructuring my military (and not expecting a war), so my troops are all spread out and ready to be slaughtered.

 

Compounded by the fact that I tried not to make alliances so I wouldn't be drawn into wars that often, so France brings along Great Britain and Castille, while I bring along a series of OPM vassals that will soon be annexed.

 

Long live the Wittelsbach family of Bavaria! As charming as the Habsburgs and as militarily successful as the Prussians.

I assume you've already asked your mom for permission/temporary unblocking/to download it onto the computer herself?
